What Makes a Jacket Great for Fall?

Fall is the perfect season to show off your style! Even though the weather is getting cooler, it’s not so cold you need to be bundled up and not so warm you can’t wear what you want. To pick the best jackets for fall, you need to make sure it’s not too heavy. Fall days are notorious for being brisk in the morning and warm by afternoon, so look for a light jacket. Something that looks good when worn open is also great because it gives you options as the weather changes during the day. Luckily, there is a huge variety of lightweight jackets to choose from. Everything from sporty to formal can be found in fall jacket styles. Whatever the weather, occasion, or your personal style, the perfect fall jacket is waiting for you.

Types of Jackets that Are Great for Fall


Half shirt, half jacket, shackets are a great choice for warmer fall days. Shackets are essentially a heavier, button-down shirt, which makes them great for layering.

While shackets come from classic button-down shirts, they lend a casual look to most outfits since they’re typically oversized. Pair your shacket with jeans for a comfortable yet polished look. The Joyce Shacket in taupe will go great with your favourite pair of jeans.


Blazers can definitely work as a jacket for warmer fall days. You can go for a classic blazer or a longer blazer to feel more like a jacket. The Peggy Blazer combines the best of a jacket and a blazer. Pair it with dress pants for a classy look or jeans for something more casual.

Denim Jackets

Denim jackets are a staple in any wardrobe. They work great for fall, especially on milder early fall days. As the weather gets colder, you can also look for lined denim jackets for a bit more warmth.

Denim is typically a more casual fabric, and denim jackets are no exception. Denim jackets are a great choice for casual looks that are still put together. Pair your denim jacket with almost any bottom. To avoid the Canadian tuxedo look, just make sure you don’t wear jeans.

Hooded Jackets

Hooded jackets are great for cooler days when a hoodie just won’t cut it. Plus, they give any outfit a cool, sporty vibe.

The Grey Skies Jacket in Ecru has the same comfy feel as your favourite hoodie, with a heavier fabric upgrade to keep you warm. Pair it with jeans for the perfect just-running-errands look.

Bomber Jackets

Bomber jackets were originally made for pilots, but they have since made their way to everyday wardrobes. Because of their Air Force beginnings, bomber jackets give any outfit an effortlessly cool look.

The Solitaire Bomber is a light jacket that’s perfect for brisk fall mornings. This effortless jacket can be paired with almost anything since it’s not too formal and not too casual.

Leather Jackets

Leather jackets are a staple in anyone’s closet. Like bomber jackets, they give your outfit a cool, edgy vibe.

For a fun spin on the classic black leather jacket, try the Graffiti Jacket. This jacket is totally unique, with indigo leather and graffiti-inspired doodles. Since this is such a statement piece, you can keep the rest of your outfit simple and let it really shine.

Double-Breasted Jackets

Like double-breasted suit jackets, double-breasted jackets are jackets with 2 rows of buttons on the front. Because they’re inspired by suits, a double-breasted jacket adds an instant boost of classiness to your look.

Whether you’re wearing a sweatsuit or an actual suit, double-breasted jackets are great for more formal occasions. They’re also typically warmer, so they work well for fall days that are on the colder side.

The Sloane Vegan Wool Jacket in Black is a true staple piece. The classic double-breasted style is truly timeless and will take you from work to play to everything in between.

Fuzzy Jackets

Fuzzy, fluffy jackets are the perfect cozy apparel for fall. Even if you’re not a fan of colder weather, it’s hard to be mad when you’re bundled up in a fuzzy jacket.

This type of jacket comes in tons of different styles, from sherpa to animal print. The All the Fluff Coat in Yellow is a vibrant yellow colour, so no matter how cold the weather gets, it will remind you of sunnier, warmer days.

Puffer Jackets

Puffer jackets have been a fall staple for a while now, and they’re here to stay. Originally inspired by outdoorsy down jackets, the puffer jacket has become an essential part of street style while still being cozy and warm.

Because they’re inspired by outdoor wear, puffer jackets are great for a casual look. That said, when the weather gets colder, no one will think twice about you wearing a puffer jacket! The Coco Metallic Puffer compliments any fall look with its cropped length and neutral colour.
